Potato Bug

Dear Bugged in Boise,
You will be happy to hear that despite being called a Potato Bug, this creature is no threat to your state’s signature crop.  We don’t get many requests for Potato Bug identifications outside of the arid Southwest, though they are not unknown in the northern climes.  The Potato Bug is one of our Top 10 identification requests and you can read all about them in our archives.
